Abstract

We obtain uncountably many periodic solutions to the singular Yamabe problem on a round sphere that blow up along a great circle. These are (complete) constant scalar curvature metrics on the complement of $\mathbb{S}^1$ inside $\mathbb{S}^m , m \geq 5$, that are conformal to the round (incomplete) metric and periodic in the sense of being invariant under a discrete group of conformal transformations. These solutions come from bifurcating branches of constant scalar curvature metrics on compact quotients of $\mathbb{S}^m \setminus \mathbb{S}^1 \cong \mathbb{S}^{m-2} \times \mathbb{H}^2$.
